Ruth's Grandma's Pie Crust
Thanks to Ruth's Grandma, I won't buy another pie crust. Pie crusts scared me--they always seemed so difficult to make and I've failed a few times. Not only is this recipe simple, but it makes a darn good crust. A tip from my expert-baker mother-in-law: use very cold water (ice water) and don't handle the crust too much. That makes for a very flaky crust. This is a keeper. No more lousy processed pie crusts for me!

Fluffy Pancakes
These don't last long in our house! Very easy to throw together. I use buttermilk instead of "soured milk" and these come out perfect every time.

Too Much Chocolate Cake
Wow--the name says it all! If you're a serious chocolate lover (like my husband), this is fantastic. For others it might be... well... too much. :) Overall this was pretty good and I'll make it again for my chocoholic friends.
